Cyprus Internet Directory [ Paphos touts go beyond the pale ]

Paphos touts go beyond the pale

For the second time in as many years we write to you about the scratchcard touts plying their trade in the vicinity of Paphos Harbour.

Is this a record? My husband and I were approached five times in 40 minutes, despite our best efforts to avoid them. We tried ignoring one woman who had jumped out of a car at us but when she realised we were ignoring her, she started to hurl abuse at us.

What is Cyprus coming to if after so many years authorities are doing nothing about this major problem? My husband tried to tell one tout that they were ruining tourists’ enjoyment of the harbour area but it fell on deaf ears. It has got so bad that a friend we were holidaying with refused to go near the harbour area in case she was approached.

We have finally discovered ways of putting them off. When you see one coming towards you, split up and walk in opposite directions: they need a couple, not one person. Alternatively, we had great delight on our final day in Paphos pretending to have an extremely verbal argument in front of them, they didn't know what to do!
